Destiny 2’s Iron Banner quests are made for the hardcore PvP players as they grind to become the best. Scour the Rust is one such Iron Banner quest that is fairly easier than some of the other ones but will still require some tough challenges to complete.

Things start to get challenging once you get to Timing as one of the challenges for it is to defeat 100 opponents which can take a while depending on your skill level. Not only that but you will have to play more objective-focused to get 30 zone captures.
